JERSEY CITY, N.J. - An Indiana native accused of fatally shooting two men in a parked car, cutting off their heads and hands and burying them in the woods in southern New Jersey has made his first court appearance in Jersey City.
The Jersey Journal reported that 28-year-old Yusuf Ibrahim, currently of Jersey City, didn't speak Thursday during his hearing via video link from the Hudson County jail.
He is facing two counts each of murder and desecration of human remains. Bail was set at more than $3 million cash.
State Police said Ibrahim shot and killed two men he knew during an argument in a car in Jersey City sometime after Feb. 3 and later dismembered them.
The victims are identified as 25-year-old Hanny F. Tawadros and 27-year-old Amgad A. Konds.
The newspaper did not report from where in Indiana Ibrahim is from.
